"Cleans the spills up better than any previous products"

Pepsico Fleet Manager writes: Cleans the spills up on our floors better than the previous current products.  However, the cleaning has to be done correctly, this is a watch-out-change for our team.

In the past, we put down our current product and walked away for a few hours or a day. SpillFix should be cleaned up right away. This requires training and reminders until it sinks in with the Team.

Ultimately, as the behavior has been changed, the floors look better. Easier cleanup once finished with “working the product.” Overall, no reduction in labor spent on spills.  It has been a wash. (more…)

"I could go on and on about how impressed I am with SpillFix"

FedEx Ground Operations Administrator writes: “I have yet to encounter a spill or leak this product can’t handle. I could go on and on about how amazing and how impressed I am with SpillFix.”

…as of right now our facility has used less than half the bags and its all thanks to the re-usability that this product has, the fact that we can use SpillFix 3-4 times on different spills and leaks before it has to be discarded. I have yet to encounter a spill or leak this product can’t handle. Without SpillFix, my job would be much more difficult to achieve. (more…)

"It left no residue removing any slip and fall threat to workers"

The Henkel facility in Cleveland, Ohio began using SpillFix in 2014 to clean up liquid polymer spills and seepage. The incentive to change to SpillFix was initially due to the fact that SpillFix left no residue and removed any threat of workers slipping and falling.

Duraflex in Hartford, Connecticut switched to SpillFix on May 15, 2016, after a demonstration established that it was undoubtedly the best absorbent available for liquid polymer spills.

(Insert county name) County Wastewater Treatment Plant in (Insert name of city), Ohio told us waste water treatment plants rely on massive amounts of polymer to solidify human waste before transporting and treating it. The polymer is pumped through a large network of pipes throughout the facility, with leaks and spills commonplace at hook up points. Cleaning the spill with clay absorbents could take over an hour, and still leave a slick and heavy residue behind. Workers then have to use water and a commercial cleaning product on the residue, creating a slippery nightmare. (more…)

"I have now virtually eliminated a waste stream with the SpillFix and my staff LOVES using it"

  • The “pig” absorbent, which is shredded paper product, required up to 1 1/2 hours to clean up a spill and still left a residue behind that had to be scrubbed from the floor.
  • Thanks to the re-usability of SpillFix, we only had to purchase 2 skids of the product back in October and haven’t had to purchase any additional yet.
  • In 2014, I paid to dispose of 7 drums of oily rags and absorbent.  In 2015, I disposed of 6 drums of the same. So far in 2016, I have not disposed of any – and right now have only a portion of a drum with a few oily rags from other processes. No SpillFix at all to dispose of. (more…)

"Every bit of paint color was removed from the concrete – Everyone was astonished"

February 23rd, 2016: A paint spill occurred sometime in the morning at Sherwin-Williams commercial store, Brunswick, Ohio.

A five-gallon tub of acrylic paint was knocked over while a delivery truck was being unloaded. Even after the workers’ quick response, at least a half-gallon of beige paint was spilled onto the cement driveway. (more…)

"I’ve been in this business for a long time, and I’ve never seen anything like it."

Food Industry Distributor Safety Manager writes: “…I’ve never seen anything like it. A fast, safe way to resolve spills inside a freezer.  This is a game changer.”

When a cryopak of beef ribs was punctured in a distribution warehouse cooler, it wasn’t a pretty sight. Beef, blood, and water were dripping from the top rack of the pallet, all the way down to the floor.  Clay absorbents aren’t very effective on sticky residues and are too dusty to be used in coolers. So equipment is usually brought to the scene and an expensive foam applied as a cleanser.  Costly and slow.

"In four minutes, the entire mess was cleaned, and the warehouse was restored to a safe workplace"

Bar-B-Que sauce is easy enough to clean up when it’s on your fingers and lips, but it’s an entirely different story when a five-gallon jug of it ruptures and flows onto a warehouse floor.

SpillFix was applied to the entire disaster area – from the pallet to the cardboard, the shrink wrap and the growing puddle on the floor. It was even used to absorb the sauce on workers’ hands.

In three and a half minutes, the entire mess was cleaned, and the warehouse was restored to a safe workplace again — using just one product. (more…)

"A completely safe and inert solution"

The re-usability of SpillFix made for an interesting question from a customer that deals with a variety of different spills. The customer requested that we perform a test to see if any risks might ensue if the same absorbent was used to absorb a vinegar spill…and then a chlorine bleach spill. This would normally be a serious misuse of any absorbent, especially if the mixing of the two spills happened within minutes – while the liquids were still chemically active. (more…)

"We had to find something that didn’t create spontaneous fires occurring in our dumpsters"

Ventura Foods’ Safety & Environmental Compliance Manager writes: “With the previous absorbent, we had to stop using it due to spontaneous fires that occurred in our dumpsters.”
